of ANY Condition Should be Corrected and Not Just Treated
Let me ask you something: when you experience a headache, do you reach for pain killers?
Every single time?
Have you ever stopped and thought, "my body is trying to tell me something"? Maybe you have and it prompted you to go to your doctor.
As with most people in our modern age, you may have heard, "you are stressed. I'm giving you a prescription for such-and-such pills. It will help you feel better."
Problem solved.. at least for a week or two!
Let me ask you something else: why do you want to FEEL better when you can BECOME better?
Pain killers, like other conventional medicine, treat symptoms.
But when they wear out, those symptoms return because whatever you experienced before you took the pills, was not the problem.
It's not that your doctor can't find the cause at all.
Let's take the headache example again: your doctor knows what the problem is - you're stressed.
But instead of advising you about stress management, he/she gives you a pill to make your headache go away for a little while.
The headache will return. And your stress (the CAUSE of your headache) will become worse.
Is your doctor "out to get you"? NO - not intentionally.
He/she is just doing what they were trained to do.
THE WESTERN RESPONSE TO SYMPTOMS
When dealing with disease in developed countries, both practitioners and patients resort to the concept of treatment as a response to symptoms, ailments and diseases.
Patients approach health practitioners with an expectation and ask: "I have such-and-such symptoms - what is wrong with me? Please give me something (treatment) for my ailment."
The health practitioner responds by giving the patient a label (diagnoses) based on the patient's description of what he/she is experiencing and then proposes a course of treatments.
Symptoms get addressed, but the cause is ignored.
A HYPOTHECTICAL CASE STUDY OF TREATING SYMPTOMS VS CORRECTING THE CAUSE
Treatment of Symptoms:
Susan was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (an auto immune disease) after her left leg became sluggish.
When she consulted her medical health practitioner, the prescribed treatment (therapy) included a range of steroid medicines.
This resulted in some temporary relief. Unsatisfied, Susan insisted in finding out what caused the multiple sclerosis.
The response from medical specialists were vague referrals to causes as being genetic, viral or stress related.
Correction of the Cause Behind the Symptoms:
Susan became frustrated and turned to a non-medical practitioner for help.
They determined that leptin overload (from elevated insulin), mercury influence from dental amalgams and some nutrient deficiencies were the cause (s).
After a dietary correction, amalgam removal and nutritional supplements, the symptoms subsided and Susan declared herself healed.
All diseases have a cause. When we address the symptoms, it's therapy. But when we remove the cause, we correct an imbalance in your body and eliminate all symptoms as a positive consequence.
When addressing any kind of disease it is valuable to distinguish whether one is performing therapy, or correcting causes.
